Healthy Crusades

Healthy Crusades

Whoever continues her falsehoods?
As of endless crimes
Some are silent and wallow
Taking advantage,
Without any shame (…)

The rest of this new poetic letter is on the site of poetry: The free thoughts

And if you have any doubts as to his qualifications to be the one-and-only “Mr. Crabcake,” read this wonderful excerpt from his book.


shieldsCrab Cakes

Paris may have its foie gras, New Orleans its gumbo, and Spain its paella, but the folks living along the shores and far-reaching tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay have their own signature dish: the crab cake.
